Re: Write Back Cache Enabler

Open "HP Array configuration utility" (ACU) and select "More information" when you stand on your SmartArray controller.
You will see something like:
"Array Accelerator
Battery Pack Count 2
Battery Status OK " if you have Write Back Cache Enabler.
If your Battery Pack Count = 0 - you don't have Write Back Cache Enabler.

P.S. ACU is part of the Proliant support pack which most likely installed on each Proliant server.
